East Coast in a Day,
Sri Lanka, East Coast
Info : East Coast in a Day
Life on the East coast has its own character. The daily lives of the people in Batticoloa and the surrounding villages are woven mainly around fishing due to the surrounding water bodies, the tank, lagoon and the sea.
We invite you to experience the day from a local perspective: riding in a catamaran through the tank (village reservoir), visit a nearby village and see the day to day lives of the villagers. You will be welcomed into the home of a local family for a simple home cooked meal. With a heavy stomach and the sun shining down on you, you might want to unwind a little before you rally on. May we suggest a quick swim in the tank?
Before sunset, you can join the fisherman at the lagoon who will teach you the art of fishing. Try it out and let us know how many fish you caught!
This was an excellently organised, tailor-made trip. We stayed in friendly hotels in a number of different locations, including a mud house in the jungle, beside a lake and in the hills among the tea plantations. We had a wonderful guide/driver and visited some amazing temples, spectacular world heritage sites, lovely villages and ate delicious, freshly harvested and cooked local food. It was a fabulous holiday!
